Overview

Theoretical physics is driven by the ideas of the mathematical physicist and the sometimes, subjective interpretations of the mathematics of Relativity Theory and Quantum Mechanics. Yet today, we are still faced with many paradoxes and conundrums in our attempts to understand the laws of nature.

This visionary book stands back from the grindstone of mainstream physics and presents a down to earth, Engineer’s view of Special and General Relativity, together with an insightful understanding of the physical nature of time that affects our view of the quantum world.

The author adheres strictly to causality throughout his deductive reasoning and, with just a little mathematics, arrives at an intuitive concept of the Grand Unification, Einstein’s unfinished, unified field theory. The field provides a common source of energy for all processes (including gravitation), all matter from the beginning of the universe itself.

Ken Hughes demonstrates why we are living in a binary universe and his theory offers fascinating explanations for many present-day conundrums in physics.

Updated with even more explanations, examples and supporting research, this second edition of The Binary Universe revisits the conclusion of the first edition, with more detail and additional information.

Contents include: Causality of gravitation, Wavelike time, Quantum time, Binary time, Entanglement and the quantum world. The Binary Universe opens up a radical new approach to Space and the universe that surrounds us.

About the Author

Ken Hughes is a professionally qualified Mechanical Engineer, now retired. Born in Denton, Lancashire, England in 1947 during the period of austerity immediately after the Second World War, he is a native citizen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain. Of northern stock, he inherits the down to earth attitudes typical of that region. As a young child, he played in the rubble that was the city of Portsmouth and throughout his life has borne witness to the rebuilding and regrowth of the UK. He was educated in the local schools and colleges and attended the University of Portsmouth where he read Mechanical Engineering.

He has spent the majority of his career in technical and managerial roles in the process plant engineering and construction industry. This has been mainly within the UK, but with some time spent in the USA in the 1980s and more recently on continental Europe, as a freelance Engineering Consultant.

He has always had a marked interest in physics, astronomy and cosmology and a fascination for gravity, but his professional engineering career has not utilised his scientific leanings and abilities. So, perhaps later in life than might have been expected, he has finally found the time, the energy and the motivation to finally clarify these outstanding issues in science that have been troubling him over the years.
